The Big Faceless Java PDF Viewer is a Swing component that can display PDF documents. It is intended for developers who don't require the full API. The PDF Viewer can be installed as an applet, an application, via Java Web Start, or embedded in a Swing application. Printing, saving, text search, forms, digital signatures, and annotations are some of the many features available. The viewer can be tailored to include just the features you need, and is a cost-effective solution for those needing the features of Adobe Acrobat on a Java platform.

Release Notes: A Java 1.5 incompatible change in a previous release was reverted. It is ensured that the action() method is always called in features, which is required by overloaders. An occasional NPE from PagePanel.doLayout when deleting annotations was fixed. The order of activated/loaded/deactived events was fixed The French translation was improved.
Release Notes: In the viewer, this release allows ViewerWidgets to define javax.swing.Action and share that action between buttons, menus, and (potentially) other objects (this makes for easier code when the Action has complex rules for when it's enabled (e.g., it depends on the DocumentPanel permission); see the ViewerWidget API docs for details), fixes a memory leak when repeatedly opening Documents in a viewer without MultiWindow (added in the previous release), corrects the order of DocumentPanelEvents when closing Documents, and adds a dual-page view (two-up).
Release Notes: Viewer: changing or closing a PDF in a DocumentPanel may now call PDF.close(). This will immediately free resources for the PDF (allowing the file to be deleted on Windows), but if anyone is still holding a link to the PDF object after its DocumentPanel has closed, it will cause problems. Viewer: PagePanel has been completely refactored to better handle interruptions and fix a number of special case rendering errors. Note that this release does not allow the page to be changed once set. Viewer: Windows L&F now has the Cancel button on the right (the Windows way).
Release Notes: In Viewer, a SelectArea tool and an associated AreaSelectionAction were added, and TextSelectAction was changed from an abstract class to an interface to match. A CropPage feature was added as an AreaSelectionAction. MultiPageDocumentViewport was rewritten for efficiency, particularly when scrolling rapidly with a mouse wheel. Smooth scrolling was added where possible. The ability to capture handwritten signatures using an iPad, iPhone, or Android device via the new SignatureCapture feature (not on by default) was added.
Release Notes: Selected text will stay selected if the text selection tool is inactive. The About feature can be configured with custom logo/text properties. A ClosedByInterruptException in ThumbnailPanel with no multiple DocumentPanels was fixed.
